About

This is a bright and open 2-bedroom apartment in a well-managed, clean, and quiet condominium building in central Harlem (131st Street and Lenox Ave). It is on the second floor of a building with an elevator. It is 850 sq ft and receives great light throughout the day. The main windows face a back-lot and thus very quiet. All oak wood floors and 10-ft ceilings. The apartment itself has been recently renovated with personal touches such as expansive built-in shelving, custom-built closets, Brazilian quartzite counters in the kitchen, designer fixtures, and a Finnish-style hidden drying rack above the sink (which doubles as storage). Sound-sealed windows have also recently been replaced, making the apartment nearly silent at night. Custom rolling window shades will also remain. Heat, water, gas, and electricity are included with rent. Cable and internet utilities are the responsibility of the tenant. Small pets will be considered with an additional deposit. Additional building amenities include: double-locked front doors, intercom system, private mailroom, community laundry room on ground floor, basement storage (at an additional fee), community gym, and back-lot yard with basic patio furniture and grills. Great for BBQs! The apartment will not be furnished (as in photos), but all shelving and storage accessories will remain. We will also have several house plants for adoption if the tenant is willing to keep them. This apartment is a 20-block walk to Central Park, and with quick access to the East and Hudson rivers (and bike paths!). On our corner is a public playground, and are also 6 short blocks from Mount Morris Park which features a public outdoor swimming pool, amphitheater, BBQ pits, and baseball fields. A very lively part of the neighborhood! The neighborhood has plenty of opportunities to spend outdoors, with numerous sidewalk cafes and community gardens, including a Harlem Grown garden across the street that you may get involved with. We are also a 4 block walk from the Harlem YMCA, which has outstanding fitness facilities, lap pool, sauna and steam room. Around the corner on Lenox Ave, there is an exciting restaurant scene with Red Rooster, Corner Social, Sylvia’s, and more. 3 minute walk to 2/3 train, 10 minute walk to A/C/B/D, and 15 minute walk to 4/5/6 train and MetroNorth commuter trains. Available for virtual showing or in-person with masks required. ABOUT YOUR LANDLORD: We are the owners and your landlord. We have lived in this apartment for 12 years and have been very happy here; but we are moving permanently to another apartment in the neighborhood to accommodate our growing family. We will be in the neighborhood, and there is a property manager on site.
